We are thrilled to present a unique offering: the Early Anderssen Drop Jaw Chessmen, Tournament Size, circa 1858. Crafted from boxwood and ebony, these exquisite chess pieces will transport you back in time.

Each piece is weighted and thoughtfully felted for a premium feel. The King proudly bears the "1858 Staunton" inscription on its rim, a mark of authenticity and quality. As you handle these chessmen, you'll notice the King side Rooks and Knights adorned with the regal King's crown mark atop their summits.

According to the renowned Camaratta Codex, these chessmen are in the style of the legendary Anderssen and were originally crafted around 1858. Notably, the Knights feature the distinctive Anderssen drop-jaw design, adding a touch of historical elegance to your gameplay. The Bishops are equally captivating with their wide vertical mitres.

The King stands regally at 3-1/2" in height and has a base diameter of 1-3/4". These Early Anderssen Drop Jaw Chessmen are a faithful reproduction.

We take pride in recreating the timeless elegance of these historical pieces. To ensure transparency and avoid any confusion, each set is explicitly labeled as a reproduction, clearly indicating its homage to the original craftsmanship. We appreciate your discerning taste and understanding of the rich history behind these beautifully replicated chess sets.
